This week I’m putting the final touches on new pieces for the show Amalgamated Transmutations: Flight, Growth and Breaking Open with my friends and fellow SEED artists Nicole Uzzell, and Millicent Greason. The opening reception is this Saturday, May 4th. Please stop by if you can, we’d love to see you. The show will be on view thru May 31st at The Electric Mustache Gallery. I’m doing some large-scale screen printing on found fabrics for this exhibit and talked a little about my inspiration in a post here. And here are a few photos of work in progress for the show; with more info on the exhibit after the jump.
Amalgamated Transmutations: Flight, Growth and Breaking Open
Artists Nicole Uzzell, Millicent Greason and Woodie Andersonpresent new work examining transformations of the physical and mental self under pressure. Together, these three artists use trusted skills and materials combined with unfamiliar techniques and new mediums to explore themes of distortion, mutation and renewal-leading to fresh, unexpected perspectives. The results are both beautifully authentic and unexpectedly raw.
The exhibit includes: paper, wire and ceramic sculptures by Nicole Uzzell, mixed media assemblages by Millicent Greason and large-scale screen printing on found fabrics by Woodie Anderson. Together they collaborate on three sculptural, life-size self-portraits built from paper casting and other found objects and materials as a focal point for the exhibit. Visitors may join the conversation on self-image and social expectation through a interactive installation that will evolve throughout the exhibits duration.
